What is a psychiatric evaluation?

A psychiatric evaluation involves a comprehensive mental health assessment by your expert mental health practitioner at Peace, Hope & Harmony, Inc. They review your medical history, your family’s medical history, and discuss your mental health background to gain an overall, in-depth understanding of your mental health and wellness.

They may also recommend pharmacogenetic testing, which helps them identify medications that work best with your genetics.

What can I expect during a psychiatric evaluation?

You can expect your practitioner to ask questions about your symptoms, lifestyle, and medical history. They may want to know details about your feelings, emotions, triggers, and what your daily routine looks like.

Once you receive a diagnosis, they establish a personalized treatment plan to start your wellness journey to feeling better.
